Groups of marginalized persons have tended to lower the sense of security of passengers and pedestrians who use or walk past the railway station in Weinfelden. We analyzed the situation from the perspective of crime prevention and compiled various measures that could enhance one’s subjective sense of security at and in the vicinity of the railway station. Our work centered on a workshop that included city representatives, members of marginalized groups, railway-station users, nearby residents, local business operators, employees of Swiss Federal Railways (SBB), cantonal police, and youth social workers.
